You have joined us at the web pages for the Hutt Valley Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists.  This site provides information for our branch members and also for anyone interested in researching their family history in the Hutt Valley area.


Our Branch generally meets twice a month at the Petone Public Library meeting room, 7-11 Britannia Street, Petone.  Evening access is via the door from the Peel Place Car Park.

Parking is available in Peel Place Car Park, next to the Libary, and accessed from either Britannia St or Richmond St.  This map shows Peel Place Car Park.

Visitors are most welcome.

You can also read about our news, find back copies of our information-rich Branch newsletters, and see what speakers and topics have been covered at previous meetings.

We hope these pages will provide you with some additional sources to further your family history research, including the resources the Branch holds for members' use in its library at the Heritage Centre, Petone Public Library. We have also included some links that you might find helpful.
